Cocker-The-Woods - Cocker Spaniel


Release date: July 2009

A single limited edition of 95 Giclée copies only

Image size: 16" x 12" paper

In May 2001, I published my first Cocker Spaniel image, Cocker Two. At that time, it seemed appropriate to illustrate both the working and show varieties. This proved a little limiting as those who liked the working breed didn't want the show and visa versa.
This year I have finally got around to painting a working Cocker image, something I have been promising to do ever since the publication of Cocker Two.

Unlike Springers, which just come in liver and white and black and white, Cockers come in what appears to be an infinite variety of colours. I knew that this could be a problem because however well received the finished work might be, the colour that I chose to paint the dog would not suit everyone. I decided upon black with a touch of white, simply because it appeared to be the most popular form from my own experience at shows.

Inevitably, when I launched the new work at the CLA Game Fair this year, I was told that I should have painted the dog this colour or that depending on who I was talking to. Nevertheless, the image was very well received and is selling well.

For the first time also, I have decided to produce the image on canvas as well as paper. The canvas size is larger than the paper size and if you click on the link below you can view an image of the canvas print compared to the paper version.
